West Ham's Carlton Cole has been been fined and warned following his Twitter outburst last month.
The West Ham striker referred to the large numbers of Ghana fans at Wembley Stadium in comments he later deleted.
He tweeted: "Immigration has surrounded the Wembley premises! I knew it was a trap! Hahahaha. The only way to get out safely is to wear an England jersey and paint your face w/ the St. George's flag!"
Cole accepted a charge of improper conduct for the remarks - and having requested a personal hearing, he was fined £20,000 and warned as to his future conduct.
